The article focuses on the recruitment strategy of KPMG. The company already has a number of tactics to deal with it, although these are being continuously tweaked to ensure that they stay relevant. For example, three years ago the firm developed a new approach to reaching students on campus. Their recruiters went into the student unions. KPMG is using social networking sites to tell people about campus events and setting up online communities for interns, gap year students and newly recruited graduates.
